Cos Meet Liberty's Advanced Client Specs

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Liberty Alliance, the global identity consortium working to build a more trusted Internet for consumers, governments and businesses worldwide, today announced that Intel, HP, NTT and Symlabs have demonstrated interoperability for Liberty’s Advanced Client specifications. The testing was conducted by Liberty’s Technology Expert Group (TEG) to ensure the specifications meet foundational use case requirements and enable interoperable implementations. The final release of the Advanced Client specifications is currently scheduled for later this summer.

Liberty’s Advanced Client is a set of specifications and technologies that leverage the proven interoperability, security and privacy capabilities of Liberty Federation and Liberty Web Services to allow users to conduct a wide range of identity-based transactions from any device and when the device is either connected to a network or offline. During the preliminary testing event held earlier this month, Intel, HP, NTT and Symlabs demonstrated interoperability and key functionality of the Advanced Client specifications including connected and disconnected single sign-on, secure access to Web Services and the complete provisioning lifecycle at the device level.

“Proven interoperability of identity products is allowing organizations of all sizes and in every market sector to more easily deploy and manage successful identity-based applications and services,” said Roger Sullivan, president of the Liberty Alliance Management Board and vice president of Oracle Identity Management. “By validating interoperability and functionality of the Advanced Client specifications, HP, Intel, NTT and Symlabs are among the organizations playing an important role in driving the next generation of open, secure and privacy-respecting client-based applications.”
